For the last year or so i have been plagued with what i assume to be shin splints, I'll rest for a few weeks and it will subside then as i ease my mileage back up it starts with a dull pain in my lower shin and steadily as i keep training works its way up my leg. Even after some shorter runs around 5k, by the time i finish i can barely walk. so i rest for a week or 2 and start slow and sure enough after a while it hapens again! this is getting really frustrating now! i'm 6,2 and around 12 1/2 stone so carrying a bit of extra weight but not that heavy and i'm not a heel striker landing on my midsole. I had my gait analyzed and am a very mild overpronator and have shoes to suit and have even tried a shoe with more padding to no avail. does anyone have any ideas or advice?
